Language classes are four hours in duration each day from Monday to Friday for the first two weeks of the program. Students will be assessed on four macro skills areas: Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing. Students will sit a final language exam and be given a percentage mark and grade for this assessment.

It should serve as a space in which students are able to reflect on the challenges and rewards of working in a cross-cultural professional environment, and guide students’ workplace tasks week-by-week based on input from their CADPP Program Officer and workplace mentor. The reflective journal should also demonstrate evidence of a student’s understanding of set course readings and ability to relate these readings to their practicum experience.
